This was my dad's work bike when he was a messenger in SF. He rode the hell out of it and it still stood up to the job. It's also the bike I learned how to actually ride on (not how to ride a bike, but how to be a cyclist rather than just some guy on a bike) Sure, it's not an X0-1, but an X0-1 couldn't handle the kind of work this bike needed to do! It's an awesome ride: super smooth, and sturdy as an ox. definitely not the lightest bike on the road, but my kids will most certainly be riding this thing when I'm done with it. NUF SED.
